Part II: Designing with Dreamweaver > Using Dreamweaver’s Page Layout Aids

Chapter 10. Using Dreamweaver’s Page Layout Aids


Like ice cream, web designers come in all flavors. Some love their code and want nothing more than to be close to it. They can appreciate a visual design interface like Dreamweaver’s because of the amount of time it saves, but feel compelled to keep an eagle eye on the Code view, monitoring every tag Dreamweaver writes. Others are happy to allow Dreamweaver to translate for them, instructing it to place this or that element on the page and trusting that the software will take care of things behind the scenes. The preceding chapter discussed using tables for page layout, and how to make the code work for you in designing. This chapter looks at the various options you have to let Dreamweaver do the table coding for you, including Layout view and the Convert Layers to Table command. It also covers rulers, grids, and tracing images—viewing aids that can help you create layouts in Design view regardless of how you approach your page layout tables.
